The US Open of Mountain Biking Heads to Killington Resort in 2018, Adds Enduro
The course is coming down Chop Chop which in the winter is a super steep glade. On the bike, it is going to make for a hell of a final pitch! SO psyched USO is coming to K!

Commencal Supreme 20 w/ Upgrades

$1200 USD
2015 Commencal Supreme 20 with 10-speed drivetrain, excellent condition. My lil shredder has grown out of it and is ready for a 24" now. 10-speed SRAM XO derailleur and shifter One-Up 32t N/W chainring Shimano XT hollow-link chain Shimano XT brakes, front and rear Enduro fork seals The bike is in excellent condition. The whole bike is in perfect working order, ready to roll for your little pilot. The drivetrain has plenty of life left in it, pretty hard for an 8 year-old to stretch chains and it was put on new this season. This bike is super quiet on the trail, and super dependable. Never had any problems with it at all. The only blemishes it has are normal wear and tear from being child-handled near some rocks...each fork lower has some scratches in the decals as a result (see photos). The only other blemishes that keep it from being in perfect condition are a very small amount of your typical rub marks, minor scratches, and slight pitting. All sliders are flawless, both for the fork and the shock. Headset is tight, as are all pivots and hubs. Commencal has not changed this bike much at all since this model. If you were to buy one from Commencal today, you would essentially be getting the same bike, but no 10-speed drivetrain as it only comes as a single-speed belt-drive setup. I will also include the single-speed setup with the bike in case your little isn't ready for gears yet. I am also willing to remove the 10-speed drivetrain or brakes and install the original equipment at a lower price. Let me know if this is something you would like to do and we can figure out a different offer. Thanks for checking it out! Rob

Gravity Logic Built, US East Coast Bike Parks
Breaks the posted rules and gets yelled at....and THEY'RE the assholes. YUP. You have quite the sense accountability! And you also don't know what you're talking about with their goals. Their goal is to be the the biggest and best in the east. The expansion plan isn't even halfway done yet. Next season will bring more new trails and long term the goal will be to develop the top.

Pinkbike Poll: Will Your Next Bike be Downhill or All-Mountain?
Nobody bringing up durability here. You might be able to hang with riders on dh bikes while you ride your AM, but do that over the course of a season and the enduro bikes get super clapped out. DH bikes are tougher and are purpose built for the rough stuff. I prefer a DH and a trail bike, though my bank account will probably say all I can do is a trail bike.
